John Edwards on Iraq

|

John Edwards is in the large group of Democrats who had the same evidence President Bush had and supported the military action to remove Saddam Hussein from power, some of whom have strongly insisted that Bush knew there were no WMDs on the same intelligence they had while supporting him. I hadn't known how strong Edwards' support for this action was.

"We know that he has chemical and biological weapons today. He has used them in the past, and he is doing everything he can to build more. Each day he inches closer to his longtime goal of nuclear capability � a capability that could be less than a year away.We know that he has chemical and biological weapons today.

"Almost no one disagrees with these basic facts: that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a menace; that he has weapons of mass destruction and that he is doing everything in his power to get nuclear weapons."

That, of course, was the old John Edwards. He seems to be less consistent now. He sometimes reminds us that he supported the President on this, with no further qualification. Yet he's also joined the bandwagon of those accusing President Bush of misleading everyone. Edwards had the same information, and he made just as strong arguments for the same conclusion. Aren't his more recent comments at best grossly dishonest? I was about to start liking the guy somewhat, too.
